CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

IEEE P1484.20.2™ – Recommended Practices for Defining Competencies

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the working group for the IEEE P1484.20.2™ Recommended Practices for Defining Competencies.

WHY GET INVOLVED

Competency-based education, training, and workforce development is essential to embrace and develop the new skills required for the future of work. A common vocabulary, and recommended practices, are required to help stakeholders develop and communicate competency definitions. Common, shareable competency definitions enable systems, courseware, assessments, and learning tools to interoperability reference the same competencies so that, for example, learner records can be meaningfully transported from one system to another and from one organization to another. The quality of the information in these competency definitions has an impact on competency-based education, training, and workforce development.

The stakeholders include policymakers, educators, awarding bodies, employers, and labor unions. Contributors and consumers of this standard will include curricular designers, designers of learning content, credentials designers, learners, developers of academic and workforce competency frameworks, assessments developers, catalogers of learning content, educators, human resources professionals, and job boards, who need well-defined competency definition.
